Revealed: How Sonko predicted Kamanda’s loss to Jaguar

Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko Mbuvi correctly predicted the downfall of outgoing Starehe MP Maina Kamanda in the just concluded Jubilee Party primaries, it has emerged.

Kamanda’s quest to win the party’s Starehe constituency nomination was thwarted after the Jubilee Party Appeals Tribunal on Wednesday declared popular musician Charles Njagua Kanyi aka Jaguar as the winner of last week’s elections.

This decision was arrived at after a wave on uncertainty over the actual winner of that particular political contest.

Earlier, Kamanda was declared winner by the exercise’s returning officer, an outcome a tearful Jaguar bitterly protested and rushed to the Tribunal for Justice.


Amid the drama, it has emerged that Sonko, who easily beat Peter Kenneth for the the party’s gubernatorial ticket, had a bone to chew with the veteran Kamanda who had during the campaigns used offensive language against him.

An edited two minute video Sonko shared on his Facebook page on Wednesday evening highlighted the rivalry between the two city based politicians.

It shows Kamanda apparently saying that Nairobi people will not give Nairobi to “dogs” even as he castigates the senator’s “Rescue Team”.

Sonko responded by declaring he will support Jaguar’s quest to unseat Kamanda, something that came to pass.
